My Alphabe-Thursday (5th), the letter "K" — Some places I've been starting with "K"
There are several countries beginning with the letter "K" but I haven't been to any of these yet. My list can be found here: http://www.state.gov/misc/list/index.htm#k.
None of them are on my bucket list so I doubt if I will be to any of these.
- States: (I've been to all 50)
- U.S. Cities over 100,000 population where I've been:
Kansas City, Missouri
Kansas City, Kansas
Kansas hasn't had too much good for me. The best is that Lawrence, Kansas has a Runza restaurant. When we go north (Iowa and Nebraska) we generally stop there to have a Runza sandwich (read about my experiences here).
These have been on my blog several times. The Runza is considered by many, the Jim's included, to be the National Food of Nebraska.
The Runza is a hamburger--cooked ahead, cabbage, and onion (more or less, check your recipe) baked inside a folded dough. We think it is German food. (Wikipedia for history)
I had my first Runza in Lincoln, Nebraska. The owner of the original Runza Hut started all this in a little restaurant in a former home out by Antelope Park. You could walk up to the window and order. Either to go or to take to a picnic bench under the trees and awnings to eat on premise. He did have a couple of tables inside for rainy days.
We enjoyed our Belize City stop last week. Pictures below (click on picture for larger size).
"K" is for Key West, Florida. Before our transatlantic cruise to London last April we flew to Key West and stayed a couple of nights, giving us almost three days there. I posted our stay there along with my Florida information, you can revisit that, click here.
